Even though it may not look like spring outside, we all know it's coming. A couple weeks ago we were all fooled into thinking spring had sprung, but I think we all played ourselves. Winter came back with a couple of snows and the temperature dropping once again. But let's not dwell in this cold weather for long because sooner than we know it will be spring!
With spring comes so many great things. Not only do we finally get to wear our best outfits, but it becomes absolutely stunning outside. The trees finally start to bud and look less like they're from horror movies. Tulips start to take over our city, whether you're at Major's Hill Park or you walk about at Tulip Festival, tulips are essential to every spring in Ottawa. One of the best parts of spring has to be the gorgeous cherry blossom trees that bloom between late April and early May.
The Dominion Arboretum transforms into a pink flower tree wonderland! Whether you go to take a stroll for the day, or you take some snacks and have a little picnic, you are in for a day filled with colour. If you have never been to the Dominion Arboretum during this time of the year, now is your chance to tick it off your list!
The Dominion Arboretum is a part of the Central Experimental Farm of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. The Arboretum runs between Prince of Wales Drive, Dow's Lake and the Rideau Canal. There are over 1,700 different species of plants at the Arboretum throughout the year.
